This is my island in the sun
Where my people have toiled since time begun
I may sail on many a sea
Her shores will always be home to me

Oh island in the sun willed to me by my father’s hand
All my days I will sing and praise
Of your forest waters your shining sands

As morning breaks the heaven on high
I lift my heavy load to the sky
Sun comes down with a burning glow
Mingles my sweat with the earth below

Oh island in the sun willed to me by my father’s hand
All my days I will sing and praise
Of your forest waters your shining sands

I see woman on bended knee,
Cutting cane for her family
I see man at the water side,
Casting nets at the surging tide

Oh island in the sun willed to me by my father’s hand
All my days I will sing and praise
Of your forest waters your shining sands

I hope the day will never come
That I can’t awake to the sound of a drum
Never let me miss carnival
With calypso songs philosophical

Oh island in the sun willed to me by my father’s hand
All my days I will sing and praise
Of your forest waters your shining sands
